Comment Period Extended for FLSA Domestic Service Rule

Comments are being accepted for two more weeks, until March 12.

The U.S. Department of Labor has extended the period for filing written comments by 14 days on the proposed rule to apply the Fair Labor Standards Act to domestic service, which was published Dec. 27, 2011. Comments now are due by March 12.

To submit one or read posted comments, search for RIN 1235-AA05 at www.regulations.gov.

DOL proposed to revise the act's minimum wage, overtime, and recordkeeping regulations as they pertain to the exemptions for companionship services and live-in domestic services. This would revise the definitions of "domestic service employment" and "companionship services" and more specifically describe the type of activities and duties considered "incidental" to companionship services.

Members of Congress and "various business organizations" asked for the extension, according to DOL's notice.
